Well, hello fabulous people.
WordPress had changed stuff and it’s not where it used to be. That’s disconcerting.
I wanted to update.
I started counting macros and such because I noticed a plateau in weight loss (this early in, yes I know, I’m obsessive and need to put the scale and measuring tape away)… but yeah counting. I need to take in more fats. Lots more.
So the other night I made the best thing that has ever come out of my kitchen and I wished I had taken a picture, but they were gone so fast… in my tummy.
I took a muffin tin and lined the cups with bacon. Winn Dixie had Oscar Meyer thick cut bacon bo-go.
Then, I made a mixture of ground turkey, two eggs, spices (garlic, salt, pepper, rosemary, etc) and threw in a little bit of crushed pork rinds as a binder (note, eating a whole bag of pork rinds in one sitting will make you physically ill. Seriously).
In another bowl, I mixed together diced jalapenos and cream cheese.
I layered the ground turkey and jalapeno/cream cheese mixture in the bacon lined cups.
Oven. 400 degrees. Half an hour.
Holy god it was amazing!
Tonight, I’m thinking of doing the jalapeno cream cheese mix, but stuff actual pieces of chicken and wrap those suckers in bacon.
Also I’m thinking of doing a soup because of the “cold spell” we’re going to have. I’m going to cook some bacon, then cook chicken thighs in the bacon grease… then take the drippings and meat and make a broccoli cheese soup out of it. The “broth” is going to be heavy whipping cream, unsweetened almond milk, cream cheese, and cheddar cheese.
It sounds so damned unhealthy.
But it’s gonna be sooooooo good.
But in my defense, I had a kale salad with cottage cheese, avocado, and sunflower seeds for lunch.
Also, something I want to try — I heard that mixing coconut oil in your morning coffee is a thing… so I tried it and I like it. Doesn’t taste coconutty or anything. Leaves my lips moisturized. Also throwing in a smidge of unsweetened cocoa powder to add some flavor. However, I found a different recipe called bulletproof coffee
- Coffee (duh)
- Knob of butter (whatever that means. Sounds kind of dirty… but I’m also bored at work on a Friday. Sue me. )
- Coconut oil
- Sweetener (stevia in my case)
Blend until emulsified.
And evidently that’s supposed to be breakfast. But my coffee ain’t cutting it. I NEED breakfast or by 10:30 I’m ravenous. And I really hate taking early lunches because it makes the afternoon go by soooooo slow.
And some folks in my keto group on FB are talking about fasting — seriously. I can’t. I just can’t. I have thyroid disease and I need to eat. If I don’t eat my body has a hard time processing and using chemical energy. So much nope.
Still down roughly 14 lbs from being weighed in at the doctor in January.
Still getting an hour worth of walking in every day.
However, I noticed S.O. is terrible for my diet.
